A Walk From The Canal To Boardwalk
The Final Day Of 2009
From Noon to 1:30 pm
Everything looked nice in the snow, so I decided to take a walk. I parked at the Sandwich entrance to the Cape Cod Canal and walked past the marina, Town Beach and over to the Boardwalk.
The snow was sticking to the cold rocks, but the temperature was just above freezing with no wind.
There was little activity among the lobster boats.
Everything was quiet around the marina. The pleasure boats had all been put away for the season.
The sailboats sat across the road in their own winter yard.
There wasn’t much going on at the Marina building.
A little further along there were lobster traps stacked and ready to go once the weather cleared.
The Coast Guard sat ready just in case.
Even the local fishing boats were tied up for the New Year.
About the only place there was any activity was at the fish market. There was a steady flow of people getting what they’d need for New Year’s Eve.
Across the road all was quiet at the Coast Guard Station.
The snow was beginning to cover the beach at the canal entrance.
The snow falling on the beach grass glazed it over with a diamond-like crust.
When I got to Town Neck Beach the lot, not surprisingly was empty.
Everything was empty – no people anywhere. They must all be preparing for New Year’s Eve celebrations. I took a short walk in the dunes.
The beach was empty.
I did walk the Boardwalk before returning. The snow made for a very nice walk on the final day of 2009.
